the need outside the elevator using current technology and we learn about the latest destination elevated technology all here in san francisco. we will also visit the machinery where all the behind- the-scenes gears control these incredible machines. we are very fortunate today to have an expert with those who is going to walk us are around elevators in san francisco. can you tell us about the history of elevators in san francisco? the measure -- >> sure. the history of elevator technology evolves with the city. first elevators were installed for moving materials in the 1860's. in the 1870's, the first passenger elevator was installed, and that allowed building heights to go up to about seven floors. starting in the 18 eighties, 1890's, the first electric elevators were installed. that allowed for buildings to go up even higher, even more than 10 floors, and those were the first elevators that became representative of what we consider modern elevators today. >> so the height of buildings is related to elevator technology. >> both of these technologies encourage architects to build taller
. [applause] >> i am the chair of the club of science and technology member- led forum. i'm your chair for today. we also welcome our listening and viewing audience, and we invite everyone to visit us online. now, it is my pleasure to introduce our distinguished moderator who helped us all together today's panel. he is a technology veteran with operating in investing experience in technology businesses and the ceo of a premier north american publication with data center facilities, virtual private clouds, managed hosted platforms in san francisco, los angeles, and a nationwide high- performance backbone. it is also the managing partner of excellent capital, a private equity firm investing in growth stage companies. previously, was the co-founder of centera, the leading provider of wireless base stations. prior to that, he worked at national semiconductor, where he led the development and commercialization of internet networking products. he has been -- he has a degree in management from stanford, an ms from the university of central florida, and a degree in electrical engineering from
. >>> as the controversy escalates over hard knocks on the football field, a business is growing. can new technology really help prevent dangerous concussions? a "nightline" investigation. >>> juicy, ground, and made of buffalo chicken wings? it's not your grandma's recipe. the meatball guy serves up new spins on the old school classic. >>> keep it right here, america. >>> from new york city, this is "nightline" with terry moran. >> hello, everyone. thanks for joining us. tonight, a high stakes rescue mission is under way. police are staking out the underground bunker where a 6-year-old boy is being held hostage after being kidnapped from his ride home from school. it was a deadly attack in broad daylight, one raising some chilling questions about how safe children really are on the school bus. abc's jim avila brings us this report. >> just had a bus driver shot. possibly deceased. >> reporter: that was bad enough. an innocent driver shot to death. as police rushed toward his school bus in midland, atlanta, they found much worse. this bright yellow rolling sanctuary for a group of elementary school kids ha
on. it is a very interesting piece of technology. there is no battery, no radio, no antenna. if you ever thought about how you might pass something inside the body, for example, i do not know if you have ever heard of anything called a potato battery. that is where you put a little bit of copper, magnesium inside a potato and then you can like it up. in this case, we have a little bit of copper, a little bit of magnesium, both essential battery elements. we have about 7 micrograms of copper. and you need about 1,500 milligrams of copper per day, in your diet. and then a tiny bit of magnesium. when you swallow this device, you become the potato. it is powered by you. and it sends a unique identifier through your body that can only be protected -- and detected by the thing that is on your body, the patch. the pill will say, hello, i am here. i am novartis. and i am 5 milligrams. i am-no. 12 and tell no. 2. that is the data that we collect. >> how you get that into this? >> it is a digital platform. essentially, the way it works is when you swallow it and turn it on, it will send a sig
adopt these technologies and do so in a way that is safe and secure? that, for me, is the challenge of cloud. >> very nice. that leaves just into gina because she grapples with these problems every day. >> let me start by saying i feel far more at ease now in this prestigious venue after hearing "help" and "stocks -- "hell and "sucks." i can speak far more clearly to you now. in very humble being with these folks because these folks are architects. architects of technology and architect of cloud computing technology in and of itself, so i am humbled to be here with these gentlemen. i can speak from a -- i am release a purveyor of the technology that they implemented. i can speak from my role with the city and county of san francisco and how we are leveraging cloud and the benefits we are deriving from the cloud and why we made the choices therein. certainly, as tim alluded to, the choice to go to the cloud was primarily cost-driven, economically driven, no question. but also, we began to see that the city business, the city government was changing and the role of the city government
at digital health technology from the consumer electronics show international. next, health care costs and then the international monetary fund and christine lagarde talking about the global economy. >> one can't count the times of americans say we are the best country in the world. of all the countries in the world. it's pretty good. why do we have to believe that we are the best? what does that mean? why do we have to assert it all of the time and what does it mean to other people who consume it? we teach people not to like this. >> author and activist and transafrica founder, randall robinson takes your phone calls and e-mails and tweets wee hours on sunday on c-span2 on booktv. >> host: here on "the communicators" is consumer electronics show international. this is part of the convention floor that you are seeing. this is only about one fourth of what is available. the largest trade show in the world, about 100,000 people attend the show every day. today with us we have andrew thompson who is president and ceo of proteus digital health. what is proteus digital health. >> guest: it
? >> guest: when you swallow it, it turns on. now, this is a very interesting piece of technology. there's no battery, there's no radio, this is no antenna. if you ever thought about how you might, for example, power something inside the body, i don't know if you have ever made something called a potato battery, so, it's a device where you put a little bit of copper, a little magnesium in a copper, and you discover to your child's delight that you can light a diode. well, in this case we have of a little bit of copper and magnesium, both essential dietary elements. we have about seven micrograms of copper. you need about 1500 milliyams of cop -- milligrams a day in your diet. so it's a tiny fraction of your rda in the magnesium. when you swallow this device, you become the potato, and you turn it on. so it's powered by you, and it sends a unique identifier through your body that can only be detected by the thing that's on your body, the patch. so the pill is going to say, hello, i'm here, i'm novartis, i'm five milligrams, i'm batch number 12, and i'm pill number two. that's the data we

[ laughter ] this is a mistake, nation. now, we'll never complete our national database of radical islamic naughty parts. [ laughter ] we'd already established a profile, young and leaning to the right. [ laughter ] plus, it was a deterrent. terrorists are known for their modesty. that's why khalid sheikh muhammad was wearing a t-shirt over that sweater. [ laughter ] fashion fans here. laugh the worst part is, without these scanners, i have no reason to laugh stay in shape any more. [ laughter ] sure, exercise will make me look better, feel better, be more attractive, but if a government employee getting paid ten bucks an hour doesn't see how i've shaved inches off my muffin top, why even fly anymore? [ laughter ] i might as well take the bus, where you don't need some fancy scanner to flash people your junk. [ laughter ] now, folks, my guest tonight a man named michael shellenberger. he is an environmental strategist who believes that we need new thinking when it comes t
of the technology that will be coming from the manufacturers. are they willing -- will we be able to make the standards and produce a type of cars that people want? i wish i had a crystal ball and could tell you, the standards are further out than we've ever had. we would prefer them to be in five-year increments because it is easier to forecast five years out than 12 or 13 years out. but the rule is what it is. we don't know what's going to happen by 2025 in a lot of different areas, so we don't know what the demand is going to be and what the consumers will need and what they want. this is a very, very diverse country, a very, very diverse needs of the consumer and we need to address all of them. we can't address 90% and the 10% out. i would tell you what happens to consumers in washington d.c. and new york city are totally different than the consumers in new mexico for the mountain states are california. we need to consider all of them i would need to make sure the manufacturers are building vehicles that address the needs for all consumers. so are they willing? that is the concern. th
technology. i've heard him call it a business model. he has written a very popular vote which compares all the different business models. tell us why you feel that way. >> actually, i'm going to make a comment before that. a lot of people discuss whether or not corporations are going to use the cloud. i actually did a thing -- i had to do a talk about a year-and-a- half ago to 40 of the largest company cio's on the planet. i said the list because i knew who was going to be in the room, to all of my buddies, and ask who of those were customers. so i abrogated all of the data. anybody want to guess? out of 40 of the largest companies in the world, how many of the were using one or more of these -- there was about seven different applications, all delivered out of clout, -- cloud. that's over. best guess, not over. 38 out of 40. of the largest companies in the world. using one or more of these. when we debate the question of will corporations use the cloud, i would say they already have. we clearly are still in the early adoption days. i rattle off some very interesting stories right now of c
this cloud technology to takeoff structures down and across this down so now, i can change and 8% spent on a bunch of stuff that other people can go due to 80% i get to build applications, which power a very different experience. you think about what the car of the future might look like, it is a computer with four wheels, right? that is what it is. what they start to do with it, etc., is completely different. i'm talking about what we all conceptualize as a manufacturer. when you ask the question what will happen in the future? it is harnessing this technology to really deliver a service economy, and the companies that do this, the guys that figure this out are going to be big winners, and they are going to change the way we think of them, the way we relate to them, the way we buy from them, all of that. that is what the future holds. i see the floor. >> thank you. i think the best questions are yet to come, and we are going to turn it over to the audience. >> we would like to remind our listening and viewing audience that this is a program with the commonwealth club of california on t
, and globalization and technology have accelerated these changes. consider now how different our world was in the summer of 2001. leaders of egypt, iraq, and libya were entrenched in power. barack obama was an illinois state senator, and arnold schwarzenegger was a movie actor. 10 years ago, most americans had never heard of a credit default swap or mortgage-backed securities. lehman brothers had celebrated its 150th anniversary and in 2001, mark zuckerberg was captain of his high-school fencing team. borders bookstores had $3 billion in annual revenue and meanwhile, kindle something you did to a fire and nook was merely a small corner of the room. most americans knew little about osama bin laden or al qaeda. at the time, i was u.s. attorney in san francisco and i myself being out here paid little attention to those terrorist attacks that were occurring overseas. today, our world can change in the blink of an eye. the effects of that change are felt more rapidly and more broadly than ever before. consider the current economic climate. when companies fail to recognize and adapt to chang
this is the technology -- the technology of this is so -- even the rise of drones has such a sci-fi kind of vibe to it. there's always that sense whenever the united states makes a sort of jump in kind of warfare we celebrate it and realize seven going to have one of these in five years sox that the general consensus of those working on this type of technology. >> you could do on a web site to do it yourself drones and build it yourself. >> jon: i would not tell that to me. [ laughter ] it's actually like a home project? >> or if you go to brookstone or amazon and buy one online. >> jon: with a hell-fire sniffle. >> not quite those are a little bit more. >> jon: the technology is simple. >> we call them unmanned aerial vehicles because the word drone takes on a stupidness. they are getting smarter. they are sim aircraft. that's one of reasons they are so popular because they are cheaper to build and a lot cheaper to fly and maintain. you don't need an expensive pilot that costs millions to train. >> jon: doesn't take away any advantage that the united states has. if we have advantage it's that we like
technology that most people have in their pockets. antoniades: inside this cell phone we find a tiny little camera. so if you were to take off the majority of it you'd be left with an imaging chip. if you were to take 368 of these and make a big mosaic out of them and start shooting images now you have argus. narrator: unlike the predator camera that limits field of view, argus melds together video from each of its 368 chips to create a 1.8 billion pixel video stream. this makes it possible to zoom in and still see tremendous detail. whether argus has been deployed in the field is classified. antoniades: i'm not at liberty to discuss plans with the government. but if we had our choice we would like argus to be over the same area 24 hours a day seven days a week. that's not very easily achievable with manned platforms. this is where uavs come in and they're absolutely the perfect platform. narrator: argus may be mounted on an armed uav like the predator, a long-range platform like the giant global hawk or a development craft called the solar eagle that may someday st
: the realities include a more technologically oriented military, but still the requirements for special operations, special forces, infantry. in your judgment and commander as a leader of tens of thousands , do you believe that women will have soon of role in such elements of our army and other branches? >> i believe this policy is the way -- and as the chairman and the sec staff laid out, that there is an assessment phase and a revision of the current military operation specialties with every visit. the standards, the requirements for each one of those military operational specialties. and by doing so they will ensure that those women and men who are applying for those particular specialties will meet those qualifications. so they have the desire and the qualification without compromising those standards. lou: many people in this argument debate and hopefully just plain old discussion have sided with the israelis, men and women serving shoulder to shoulder and really every role in their military. can you think of a reason why it should not be so in the united states military? >> no, i
a company. i started in i-ti a technology company in the 1.0 world. it was a company that created technology to connect citizens better with government * . i ran it for almost nine years. and when i was elected to office four years ago, i was unfortunately more surprised than i wanted to be about how far behind san francisco government was. this was very 2008, 2009. with you i'm really proud of the leaps and bounds we have taken as a city * . i was proud in 2010 to help move forward legislation to really bring together city departments to work in a coordinated way with our committee on information technology. to help create a chief information officer position for the city. i was also proud to work with then mayor newsome in passing the first generation of open data legislation that we have. but as our civil grand jury in june pointed out, our i-t in san francisco is still in need of a culture shock. and this is where all of us come in today. we have 200 data sets that have already been put out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city government are data sets that i think show u
travel alongside a plant. using this new technology, it became has possible to condense the arrival of spring in a woodland into a few seconds. but the wonderful thing about wildlife filmmaking is that, no matter how much you've seen and filmed there's always going to be something to surprise you. i remember back in 1994, we were filming nepenthes rajah, the largest pitcher plant in the world growing up in the mountains of borneo. and i made an assumption about how it obtained its nitrogen fertilizer. i guess this one contains, oh, two or three pints of liquid. it's so big that it catches not just insects but even small rodents. and one was recorded that had in it the body of a drowned rat. so if ever there was a carnivore among plants this is it. but i was wrong. in 2010, scientists discovered that the plant gets its nitrogen in a quite different way and we couldn't resist going back to see if we could find out what the truth was. mount kinabalu in sabah is home to many rajah pitcher plants. they certainly seem to attract insects that fall into
: what is it you are worried about? >> you know as this technology, and i think most of your viewers think about the unmanned aerial vehicles in terms of military, and uses across the world for the military. but, you know, we have had law enforcement agencies here in commonwealth of verge victim, sayvirginia sayingthey are inten purchasing the technology, we envision potential for abuse that goes with many of the very beneficial uses they would have you believe in. charles: okay. get -- this you know give us share examples of potential abuse, what would i be worried about? >> well, sure, i don't think that any of us thought we would live in a world where there might be a permanent state of surveillance over us, we're caught on video and cameras dozens of times a day as it is, but imagine a permanent state of surveillance under the guy guisr your own benefit. the vehicles can possess technology to see what we're doing, hear about what we're doing, and smell what we're doing, and detect thermal images, that we need it rein in the technology, and have a framework for its uses by governm
know, in the previous panel there was a lot of discussion about consumer acceptance of technology. and i think that will prove to be one of the keys to this. i will say that from toyota's view when it comes to some of the advanced technologies, for example, hybrids, we don't see that as an issue, actually. as was mentioned on the last panel as well, the total market last year for hybrid vehicles in the u.s. was just shy of 500,000 vehicles. toyota's share of that was about 65% and about 330,000 vehicles. we see hybrids as a technology that consumers have accepted and will continue to accept, and we're going full speed ahead in this realm. and i think in addition to the hybridization you'll see different internal combustion engine technologies in terms of downsizing of engines, turbo charging, direct injection. but, again, some of those require improved fuels to make maximum use of those in the vehicle systems. so, you know, it is a challenge. the midterm review which perhaps we'll talk about as well is going to be a key to make sure that the standards are still achievable. of we s
fix it. in general, the technology you are talking about is something which is broadly called cloud bursting, where essentially, is used by google and other folks, there's not one computer called google.com. there's a basilian sitting behind a thing. there is a concept called load balancing, and it has been augmented of late with the ability to dynamically spinoff new instances of server applications in response to spikes in demand. the general concept called cloud bursting allows you to do that across multiple cloud vendors, so you could do it across amazon and various other people say you could get geographic diversity and so on. people doing this extremely well, for example, would be netflix. many of you in this room i'm sure use the netflix. what they did is dynamically throw what is this is as more and more people click on movies that they want to watch. so then what they are doing is as the need scales, they then have the ability -- they pay them, and, of course, it drops off as soon as the need drops off as well. so they end up essentially paying for average demand. the techn
. a big logo slide. >> and we're supposed to be about the technology. >> imagine a big stop bullying speak up logo on the slide behind me. >> say that again. >> stop bullying, speak up is the name of the campaign and a nice transition. my complements to everyone in the room. if i have learned everything in the last four years while researching bullying prevention and for our age group and the kids in the second through seventh grade it's that not only does it take a village but a village of people who are willing to partner and collaborate with each other and speak not only to adults about this issue but speak to children and i think it's an interesting transition from mia's work to mine. still not mine. >> it is but -- >> and the role we play at cartoon network and thousands of kids at home everyday and the role we play is taking that information, translating it and content on the line and when kids come independently to our screens to play games and watch television and do a variety of things we have information for them on information they care deeply part. in 2008 as research we do
technology sector. supervisor farrell mention the city as a partner in the effort.one of the commitments it was unheard of by many of the tech companies, the same with tax exclusion that we also did on stock compensation was that tech companies were committed on working with the city of san francisco on hiring residents from many neighborhoods that don't have access to the growing technology sector whether it is the mission, tenderloin, south of market and western addition; and happy to have cosponsors breed, cohen, avalos - to see what it is that we can do to partner with our private tech sector to ensure that we are opening up and creating a pipeline of jobs whether it is for our students born and raised in san francisco who might not get the type of education to be competitive for these jobs; whether it is adults that i found themselves unemployed in an economy not doing well but need additional training for these jobs. what is it that we can do to partner with the mayor's office in our tech companies to develop programs that would address three different population needs so they
, with water that are not always proven technologies, but they're things that are enough proven you should take a bit of a risk and you should show others it can be done. >> we're showing the world, suddenly had wind turbines which they didn't have before. so, our team realizing that time would change, and realizing where the opportunities were today, we said, you know what, we started out as really something to control wind as an asset, when you combine today's technology becomes something entirely different. >> wind turbines in an urban environment is a relatively new concept. there are a few buildings in other major cities where they have installed wind turbines on the roof. and wind turbines in buildings are effective. >> the discussion was do we do that or not? and the answer was, of course. if they're not perfect yet, they're building a building that will last 100 years. in 100 years someone is going to perfect wind efficient turbines. if these aren't right, we'll replace them. we have time to do that. >> the building that's two renewable energy generations. wind turbines located on the n
more technology in his hand than we have for medicare fraud. what we're having here is a disaster of epic, calamitous proportions, thank you very much, because we could be saving 120, 150 billion, with a b, if we followed fraud the way they do at the private sector. private sector, fraud is about 1% of medical plans. in medicare, medicaid and the federal system up to 10 or 12%, they don't know, know way to measure it. this is the classic example where we have 1990's technology could save this money and the government is twiddling their thumbs. >> caroline, this is a drop in the bucket of the whole medicare annual budget, but you've got to start somewhere, don't you? >> i would agree, but toby, we did just put in a 77 million dollar system and that's why we caught this. this is a new type of fraud. so i'm a little more optimistic and i want to complicate it a little bit because when you're talking undocumented workers, we actually make $80,000 on average per worker because two-thirds of the 12 million undocumented workers, 8 million of them pay medicare, social security, and they p
, the burgeoning growth of computer technology just happened to coincide with your arriving here? somebody suggested, maybe you ought to try this? i am asking how you process that. i get to that because of the success you have had, sitting on the obama commission. it is quite a fascinating journey. how do you look back at that decision at the time when you can barely speak english to study computer science? >> what is taught me is behind every closed door there is new opportunity. it is like every time life shut the door, it closes on me, high end up doing something else, and it is a new world that opens up for me. i learned in my life's journey many times that when something -- when it looks like there is no work -- no road ahead of you, behind that mountain, there is another road. there is always, if you try, you can always find a path. tavis: give me some key markers down the road, a key moments that happened for you that allowed you to get to this place with geomagic, once you left new mexico. >> first, i met an entrepreneur in city ago. i worked for him while i was studying computer s
dream story of the convention, technology is changing the way america is going to look to the future. gerri: let's talk more about that because what is happening at the end of the day, regular families are making a mint on this. people are getting wealthy, changing the fortunes not just of governments, but of individual families. is that you found? >> yes. i think it was an under reported aspect of the last election. the reason president obama did so well in ohio and pennsylvania is because their is a fossil fuel boom in the state's. people are doing well. there is a feel-good factor. they go for the incumbent. there is definitely that aspect. it has brought tremendous prosperity. and i suppose money is not everything. if it was polluting the water or making the water go, it would not be worth it, but it's not. in the sun just me saying that. lisa jackson told congress twice under oath that she has never seen one example of fracking polluting water anywhere in america command has been going on for 16 years. so no more scary stories. the science is settled in this. it is not settled.
